Are lions really good or bad dream symbols?

Just the other day I was wondering why many years ago I had a dream about an anorexic lion outside my house. Like the majority of dreams they seem quite bizarre, but it was only looking back I understood its meaning.

As you will soon realize like I did that the unconscious never sends in the most powerful Lion in the jungle by fluke, but to show you about your own inner strength and power you have in your life.

By looking back in my position many years ago I realised this was a time in my life where I had very little energy and drive to get me where I needed to be. Based off of how you interact with the lion will tell you if you have tapped into this hidden masculine drive that will push you to your limits.

Tapping into this hidden energy

The lion in your dream is really reflecting your vital energy in life. In essence, for the lion to be a positive omen in your dream it needs to be healthy, strong and friendly in your dream.

The lion reminds you if you have the right energy to get out there and approach life with excitement and energy; feeling vigorous and enthused; living life as an adventure; feeling alive and activated; and maintaining a zest for life.

Like most people who are missing this element in their lives will end up being chased, bitten or attacked by the lion. If this is the case than you will want to investigate if you are suffering from depression, low energy or drive that needs to be fixed.

The lion is a teacher in our dreams that holds great value once its energy becomes integrated within the dreamer. By understanding your own power or weakness that needs to be integrated you become more balanced and confident in your life.

Fun Fact: Spending up to 20 hours of the day sleeping or resting, lions are the laziest of the big cats. They can be found lying on their backs with their feet up or taking a snooze in the shade. 

If it enters your house it enters your mind

A lion that is seen in your house in your dream is a very positive symbol that awakens your strengths, assertiveness, dominance, and bring light into a once dark place.

Houses in our dreams are very symbolic images of the mind of the dreamer, and each floor the the lion is seen on will alter the meaning. Generally speaking, the lion that enters your house activates your inner strength, but if it turns on you with aggression it means you are not challeling it properly.

The lion in your home is really a call to tap into your inner strength and courage to confront challenges or difficult situations in your personal life. Some might argue that if you are having a power struggle with your father the lion or gorilla might also emerge in your house.

Remember we are dealing with a masculine energy that wants you to recognizes your assertiveness, emotional intelligence, protector of your family; the king of one’s domain.

Why did the lion chase you in your dreams?

A lion that chases you in your dreams points to your own inner weakness. A symbol warning you that you need to develop the energy of the lion to fight these masculine figures or powerful people who dominate you. Sometimes you need to face your fears hence why the lion shows up for you to man up!

In a weird way you would want to be attacked or eaten by the lion because you are one step closer to integrating this energy within no matter how uncomfortable it gets.

But I get it, it’s not easy to incorporate the assertiveness and strength of the lion, but something that will take time to develop over time. This could be why our fears are often attached to the lion because its really hard to do something we don’t think we are capable of doing.

The lion really wants you to examine your unresolved issues or emotions that you have been avoiding for so long. These feelings are so powerful and overpowering when you are reflecting on it so you need a lot of courage to face it. It might suggest that it’s time to confront these issues head-on and find a resolution. Because Lions are often associated with strength and transformation, if you are chased it pulls up feelings in fears of change relating to personal growth.
